Life is filled with ups and downs. Sometimes we are in a crowd filled with people who love and support us and we feel so happy. Other times we walk in that same crowd but still feel all alone. Whenever you feel like your going through just remember that you are not alone.
You’re not alone in the sense that God is always with you and He’ll never leave you or forsake you.
You’re also not alone because there are millions of people like you going through the same struggles you are going through. Theres somebody like you going through trauma and overcoming day by day. When you pray, whisper a word of prayer for someone else.
Let me tell you about my exprience
I can honestly say that only God can give you true JOY. For the past few days I had been having these heavy feelings emotionally. Not that anything was wrong but mentally I was going through. It was like the devil wanted me in a box. I was surrounded by people who loved and supported me. I even got the chance to get away for my birthday (thanks to my amazing husband).
I know these things can be mind related in regards to hormonal changes while being pregnant. Also a lot of changes are about to take place and that can take a toll of the mind. But in addition to my mental health, I felt my spiritual health being attacked. Again, even after doing the things one usually does to have mental wellness, I was still suffering somewhere. That’s where I drew the line.
I prayed the other night while in the shower. I was in tears. I just needed God’s embrace.
Around 3 or 4 am when I went on one of my many bathroom runs (pregnancy probs) this supernatural joy came over me. Literally at 3 in the morning I was wide awake full of joy! I love the irony. Usually at the darkest hour of the night, one tends to feel depressed. But God have me such a burst of energy and happiness at the darkest point of the night. I felt free. It was amazing. Anyone reading this, if you’re going through a hard situation, take some time and cry to the Lord for help. He WILL deliver! Sometimes it’ll take more than tending to your mental health. Sometimes it takes more than seeing the therapist, going away to clear the mind, meditation , etc. Im not saying these things aren’t good, but they can only take you so far. After all of that is said and done, and you still feel down what do you do? Talk to the best therapist around town. God knows everything about our lives and when we genuinely talk to Him and allow Him to talk back to us (through His word) things will turn for the better.
Deliverance doesn’t mean that the devil won’t try again to attack. However, the devil trying again to attack doesn’t mean he will prosper in it. If God is for you, who can be against you? If He is for you, YOU are NOT alone.
